I've been trying to learn harmonium on my own for a while now, and I've tried a couple of videos online and picked up some ragas from here and there. But I just couldn't get a normal pattern or a course to follow and which I can commit to.
The intent of learning is to be musically literate and be able to understand raags/ragas of Indian(Hindustani) classical music. I don't know any other instruments; I don't know harmonium either, but I can at least catch dead simple rhythms on it by trying for an hour or so. I wonder if I can even do it without a proper master!
By classic book, I mean something which has been an authority or epitome of good pedagogy in the field for quite some time.
I don't wish to learn the western style, but if it can get me started I won't mind following it religiously. I do have a keyboard, but no harmonium, keyboard's got harmonium's tone so I practice on it!
